  •  Find part-time telecommuting works best for me (6+ / 0-)

    I would miss the face-to-face interactions if i telecommuted full-time.
    But it definitely saves wear and tear on me and my vehicle.
    And i do get more work done and work longer hours on the days i telecommute than the days i go into the office.
    and many companies are becoming more and more global with increasing "off shore" components where people being in the same office is not possible.
    But the downside is that once again corporations are often getting people connected 24/7, working all sort of hours, and still paying them for 40 hours of work - at most.

      The modern business "deal" is getting 1.5-2X employees' worth of output from one employee. This is only working because we're in a "down" economy where fear is still a viable motivator.

      Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.

        And living it - they've been getting 1.5 people's worth of work out of me for a while now.
        Project managers flag the issue that the project is understaffed vs the amount of work that needs to get done by the due date. But everyone knows it won't change, at least not in the short term.
